Yesferday Mayor Theo Schuman,
Town Obunellmen Jacob Israel and Joe.
Ezernack -appeared before the-Clerk of
the District Court and took the oath of
office prescribed in the State'Consaitu
tiov. Henry Burns and Wash. Brady,
colored members elect, resigned before
being talled. A meeting of the Coun
cil will be held at the Mayor's Office, in
the Engine House, to-day, when, prob
ably, an election will be ordered on the
18th inst., for two members to fill the
vacancies above mentioned.
The troops stationed near this place
were paid off a few days since. Their
frequent visits to town and liberal ex
penditure of fractional currency gives
some little activity to business, and re
tail dealers are jubilant thereat.
Town Constable Hanson has, by his
proclamation, declared war against the
canine species: All dogs found running
at large after the 13th instant, will be
poisoned. Being thus officially notified
of the fact they can govern themselves
Ther. will be a Barbecue given by the
Democratic Conservative Club of Tiger
Island, near the residence of E. C. Pier
son, Esq., next Saturday, 11th instant.
A free invitation is extended to all.
It will be seen by the convoking order
and the proceedings of tbhb body, pub
lished in to-day's paper, the the so-call
ed Legislature of this State assembled
at New Orleans, on the 29th nit. The
test oath was applied,, and the Demo
cratic members elect were, therefore,
excluded. Consequently, both Houses
were Radically organized, and Radical
Committees appointed-patronage will
be distributed in a Radical point of
view, and the over-burdened tax-payers
be compelled to meet the enormous ex
penditures. The seats of many Demo
cratic members were successfully con
tested by defeated Radical candidates,
thus securing a sufficient large majority
to ratify the proposed constitutional
amendment and elect the two United
States Senators. Though it wa9s mplic
itly ordered by Gen. Grant that only
the oath prescribed by the constitution,
and not the test oath, should be applied
to members, it was, nevertheless, exact
ed, thus contemptuously setting at defi
ance the official instructions of the Com
mander of the Armies. However, after
organization of both Houses, the Com
4nittees reported favorably for their ad
mission on taking tthe constitutional
dath-after a large number had been
unstted by Radical contestants. "We
had hoped that as there were a large
number of Democrats elected to both
Houses some little good might be accom
plished in preventing extreme proscriIi
tive legislation, and, probably, exercis
ing nitttle controlling power; but since
these daemptive and illegitimate means
have been resorted to, we can expect no
leniency to the detriment of the accom
plishment of their political and personal
interests. We can only hope for better
things, with very little, or no grounds,
upon which to base those hopes.
SAttention is directed to the adver
tisement of Dr. Breda.
Prlamatio. by the Governor Elect.
N. O. La., June 26, 1868.
In accordance with section two of the
act entitled "An act to admit the States
of North Carolina, South Carolina,
Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama and Flori
da to representation in Congress," I, H.
O. Warmoth, Governor elect of the State
of Louisiana, do hereby convene the
General Assembly of the State of Lon
isiana to meet in the city of New Or
leans, at Mechanics' Institute, on Mon
day, the 29th day of June, A. D. 1868, at
12 o'clock x. of said day.
Given under my hand this Friday, the
twenty-sixth day of June, 1868.
H. C. WAIMOTH,
* THE LOUISIrANA LEGISLATURE.-The
crowd who assembled at the Mechanics'
Institute this morning for the purpose
of witnessing the proceedings, were not
permitted to enter the building by the
police ofticers who had psesessmon of the
entrance.. This occurred about 11
Fiiteep minntes later, two companies
of the Firslt Intry, in command of
Capt. Velie, arrived in froat of the build

six 4 ,o al iDae, sages and

ed in procession and marched to the
"4th of July Springs," where was had
a Barbecue Celebration, attended with
considerable speaking; in som4 of which
addresses, or more correctly speaking,
agitating ibaragues, 'we understand,
discussion of the political isses of the
day was, to a great extent, discarded,
and language used calculated to arouse
the prejudices and passiopO of tho blilacks,
thus arraying them against the whites,
engendering that slumbering spirit of
hatred and jmealousy which it should be
the object and aim of everyqpeace-loving
and law-abiding citizen to suppress, and
instead, encourage friendship, obedience
and good 4iehavior on the part of the
freedmen, mot only for the sake of the
peace and prosperity of .both races and,
the country at large, but partly ib
return for the many kind favors and
charities they have and are daily re
ceiving from, the friendly hands of the
whites, whom,they so unjustifiably and
falsely denounce as the enemies of their
race; when, in fact, they 'have proven
to be their oily friends in the past, and,
will, rhdonlbtedly, be their Qoly real
true friends in the future; while their
white leaders--their political advisers
and professed friends-will, as hereto
fore, leave them to their fate-in a state
of poverty and indolence, and in many
cases, perishing by, the road-side in utter
This undecessary breeding of strife
and discords will, undoubtedly, if per
sisted in, bring about much harm, which
may result as disastriously to the aiders
of this, as those of the oppressed, but
peace-inclined whites against whom this'
unjust persecution is waged. The negro,
it is well known, is naturally'a docile
and peaceable, though lethargic and
snperstitions, being; and is rather in
clined to forget the either imaginary or
real wrongs of the past and live in un
disturbed quietude under the protection
and guidance of his former master,
whose interests are one and the same.
But when their symyathios are patheti
cally appealed to and their very worst
passions aroused, instilling their minds
with poisonous hatred and discontent,
the bond of amity which should ever
exist between the races is hopelessly
severed, and suspicion, jealousy and
petty strife prevails, where should exist
a state of contentment, mutual help and
The freedmen, as we have before inti
mated, a're, as a class, well-disposed,
kind and obedient; and we are satisfied;
-and others will bear us out in this
fact-that the present disagreeable state
of feeling between the races would not
exist were they not encouraged and led
by thewbite members of that party,
and the .negro speakers on such occa
sions as above would not dare presume
to utter such abusive and incendiary
language, as, we are reliably infprmed:
was indulged in last Saturday, and
which we have heard on a similarocca.
sion. No objection is made to their cel
ebrations or jubilees, provided they be
carried on in a proper manner-free from
abuse and bad counseling, confining
themselves strictly to political discus
sions. The past is dead and buried
and should be allowed to forever sleep
in the deep bosom of oblivion. Recall
ing those scenes and 'trals, no matter
how unpleadant they may have been,
can result in no possible good, but will
increase the bitter flame of hatred,
which, if left alone, will die itself, and
can be accounted for in no other light
than j wilfully, designing motive.
The white leaders of this party, who,
through the control of the negro, have
accomplished their object, and yet pos
sess that same controlling power, should,
for the good of the country at large,
and the people among whom they may
expect to dwell in future, discounte

lived with us, and, no doubt, expect to
remain, And those who have recently
aine and by their acquired positions
expect to cast their lot with us for a
while, at least; let them, if they expect
to receive the countenance and recogni
tion of the community, properly control
this element. It is a duty they owe the
country as conservators of the peaeO, a
duty they owe their colored constituents
to not mislead them, a protecting duty
they owe the defenceless and persected
Southern people, a solemn obligation
